We Can Do It Together - The AquaRun Race Against Poverty - Sept 16, 2018 - 8:30AM TOBAY Beach

Dear friends and family,

 

I hope you are feeling well and enjoying the summer! At times like these, let's be mindful of those less fortunate. 

 

The UJA AquaRun – Race Against Poverty is a heart-warming event I sponsor to raise vital funds for local UJA food pantries, legal services for single moms, low-income seniors and much more.    It takes place on Sunday morning, September 16th, 2018 at TOBAY beach (by Jones beach at 8:30AM).  I'll be leading the way with many from Purity Products right behind me!  AquaRun is a fun "swim and run" race designed to raise money for a serious cause – New York poverty.  Purity has sponsored the race for 5 years now, but we want to raise more money.  YOU CAN HELP.   Whether you choose to participate or not, your donation is greatly appreciated.  

 

Our goal this year is to raise over $300,000 through AquaRun, and we need some help.  I personally give of course and my goal this year is to raise an additional $20,000 through my network, friends and family.

 

The easiest way to contribute is by clicking the DONATE link on the right side of this page and using a credit card.   So many of my friends, colleagues and family stepped up last year to make a difference.  So let me say "Thank you - let's do it again"!

 

To be a AquaRun Race Sponsor contact Adam Wolfthal at the UJA AquaRun desk at 516.762.5857 (phone) or email him at wolfthala@ujafedny.org.  To participate in the race simply click the register link below.

 

Yours in good health,
Jahn Levin
